Display an error message if there is an overflow in the number of digits displayed for the result. What does this mean?

Let's say you're using int. That has a fixed maximum size, right? You get 2 bytes or something like that, and if you try to produce a number larger than that, it overflows. Your computer would detect this, and when it does you're meant to catch it and report to user what's happened.

Hope that's not too terribly wrong.
